Domain of Things
Istanbul Biennial, A Good Neighbour, Istanbul, Turkey, 2017, Curated by Elmgreen & Dragset
By combining sculptural constructions, a focus on temporality, immersive space and performative qualities, Domain of Things aims to look at a surreal landscape, and underground society, as a manifestation of a current condition: a time when entire communities face questions of escapism and survival, while as a culture we simultaneously experience an increasingly addictive relationship to the pleasures facilitated by technology. Domain of Things speaks of a society at the brink of discovery and destruction, and divided between a drive for individuality and a compulsion for connection.
